Giant Squids Besiege San Diego Beaches After Earthquake


Dozens of giant squid began appearing on La Jolla, California beaches on Saturday about an hour after an earthquake centered 19 miles offshore shook the San Diego suburb. Nobody can figure out why, or if it was just a coincidence. Love the perspective in the shot above.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. interesting and creepy. too bad for media sensationalism; these aren't actual giant squid, which would be far more fantastic and much more rare.

  4. Since there's not exactly a shortage of squid (understatement), tossing them back into the water, though motivated by concern, seems unnecessary.

  5. Did anyone read the headline and think "giant squid" was a euphemism for something else, because I did.
